Back To School

Many parents know that making the transition from summer holidays back to the routine of a new school year can be challenging and even stressful. This checklist can help you get ready.

  • Ensure that your child is properly registered for school.
    This is especially important if they are attending a new school. If you are not sure, give the school a call. This is also a chance to update your emergency contact information with the school. School contact numbers are available on the division and school websites.

Q: Why has the town contracted the general construction out to a company from Edmonton when many Barrhead people need work?

A: Clark Builders was awarded the Construction Management contract. In total 9 submissions were received, screened and scrutinized by the Technical Committee. No submissions were received from any local contractors. However, during the actual tendering process local contractors will be able to submit on specific elements of the Aquatic Centre they feel they
are qualified to bid on.
